Effective Representation For Appeals

Judges and referees are human, and sometimes they get it wrong. With complex divorce and family law matters, there is potential for the trier of fact to make a mistake that results in an undesirable outcome for your case. Whether it’s an unfavorable decision at the conclusion of motion practice, or at the conclusion of hearing and/or trial, you have the right to appeal that judge or referee’s decision to a higher court.

Comprehensive Experience To Help You

At Bryant & Bleier, LLP, we have extensive experience representing clients at all stages of divorce and family law appeals. We are your advocates through:

  • Filing your Notice of Appeal
  • Seeking a stay at the Appellate Division
  • Drafting and filing of an Order to Show Cause
  • Oral argument after drafting the legal brief submission

We have a comprehensive understanding of matrimonial and family law and how the appellate courts have interpreted those laws over time. We have extensive experience conducting legal research and writing strong appellate legal briefs.

Appealable Matters

Appealable divorce and family law matters may involve issues of property distribution, maintenance, child custody and more. You may appeal interim decisions (“pendent lite” decisions), as well as final decisions after the completion of a trial. While your appeal is pending, you may also seek a “stay” of an order, which stops the enforcement of the lower court order pending the outcome of an appeal. You must also decide if it is beneficial and cost-effective to do so. We will take the time to thoroughly review your potential appeal and provide you with the information you need to come to a decision as to whether to proceed or try a mediation approach.
